Just the Outlander chapter

The chapter starts with William returning home after an uneventful search for John. Amaranthus shares that someone who claims to be a friend of John is in the parlor, and so William goes to see him. He immediately recognizes Percy, who introduces himself as John’s stepbrother in this instance.

Percy explains where John is and why he has been taken. He describes Richardson as a madman, explaining that Richardson wants to stop Hal from going to the British government. He wants to make sure Britain continues the fight and doesn’t lose the war.

William knows that Richardson is a turncoat. Amaranthus comments on the Rebels putting a madman in charge of things, but we know that Richardson won’t tell everyone why he’s around. He doesn’t come across as mad, but it’s clear that he is dangerous.

William takes the threats against John seriously. Now he needs to figure out what to do.

The problem is Percy has drank the poisoned brandy. William sends for a doctor, but it doesn’t look like there’s anything to do for Percy. At least we know that Hal didn’t take it with him. How did the brandies get mixed up though?
